If you and your pet enjoyed venturing out together at a time when Covid-19 did not exist, and you enjoyed the finer things in life including the idea of wearing some dapper country tweed, then look no further for some of the most ‘quintessentially British’ tweed items in this range of products. Before we look at them, lets establish what Tweed is and who these ‘soon to be iconic’ British companies are and why they may be of interest to you.
What is tweed made from?
‘Tweed’. A hand-woven, thick, rough, and coarse fabric that was initially made on looms. The colours of tweed were and still are those that resemble the earth and nature because that is what they were inspired by. Even in todays modern world, we still relate tweed with the earth, the countryside, nature, and anything outdoor related. The fabric is rich in colour and is made from wool and it was once used for tweed jackets and hunting, fishing, and golfing attire on country estates, but times change, and we now have canine accessories on the agenda for your luxury dog!
Why is tweed so expensive?
Tweed can be expensive due to it being a strong, high-quality fabric. However, the main reason for it being viewed as expensive is due to it being a classic fabric, with quite the history behind it. It’s links with historical hunting, fishing and golfing attire on country estates only add to the idea of prestige which makes people associate it with a ‘high price’.
